Glass for Europe is today in Istanbul to talk about Circular Economy in the European flat glass sector at the Sisecam International Glass Conference.

The use of recycled flat glass presents major benefits for the flat glass industry as it allows reducing both the energy needed for melting the raw materials and the CO2 emissions. In addition, by increasing the amount of recycled glass, it is possible to limit the process emissions, which cannot be avoided by switching to carbon neutral energy.

In his presentation, Cedric Janssens, Public Affairs Manager of Glass for Europe, shed light on the quantities of end-of-life building glass available in Europe and illustrated the climate, environmental and economic benefits of an increase of recycled glass in flat glass manufacturing.
